The Zone will be carrying a live video stream of the Japan Fan Event, as we did for the Ultimate Fan Event in Los Angeles and the Royal World Premiere in London; you can watch on our Pit General Discussion Forum. The Fan Event begins at 5 p.m. Tokyo time on Monday, which is 8 a.m in the UK and 4 a.m. Eastern time in the U.S. See the discussion thread on the Pit for GAO’s translation of tweets from the press conference; she has been following the event on Twitter for the Zone and doing a fantastic job of providing simultaneous translation. Many thanks to GAO, Lotte, jdsuki, vanessa119, Akko, Cayo, and In-too-Depp for sharing news and pictures from Japan–you are wonderful!–and thanks to Theresa for the video feed.
